At La Pulperie de Chicoutimi/Musée régional until Septembre 4, 2011 - During his field studies throughout French-speaking North America, Jean-Claude Dupont collected hundreds of legends, recording them not only in compilations and other specialized publications, but also in his naïve paintings. This exhibition presents 100 legends, part of Quebec's heritage, illustrated with paintings, reproductions and many related artifacts. Visitors can share Mr. Dupont's fascination with Francophone and Native legends and customs.

At one time the Northern Iroquoian language groups comprised about 120,000 people in some 25 nations, spread out over 230,000 km2 – an area the size of Great Britain – stretching along both sides of the St. Lawrence River, east of the Great Lakes and down into present-day northern New York State. These Iroquoians were essentially horticulturists, growing mainly maize, or corn.
